2016-2017 Renewal Structure

The UUMA continues to review the dues structure seeking to address the concerns and realities of a sliding dues scale while still presenting a balanced budget to ensure we have the resources to continue to live into our vision of a stronger, more effective association. In the 2015 fiscal year the UUMA began to move its membership period to match the fiscal year (July 1—June 30). Thank you to all who renewed their membership over the summer! A reminder that because of the realities of our accounting systems all dues will be payable beginning July 1 and must be paid by October 1 to retain membership.

The renewal process is dependent upon your profile containing correct information regarding your Salary & Housing and Ministry Setting. Please make sure your profile is up to date. You will be given an opportunity to update your profile at the start of the process. Installments (10 payments spread evenly between the day you renew and June 30) and Automatic Renewals (to process on July 1) are both available. If you wish to prepay your FY17 dues please contact Janette Lallier (administrator@uuma.org).

While we acknowledge that there is no system that will be 100% equitable across all income levels we hope you will see that the spirit of this structure is intended to level the field as much as possible. Please remember that waivers are available for those unable to pay the minimum; we especially encourage those of you who are making less than $25,000 a year to consider asking for a full waiver. Waivers must be requested by October 15, 2016. Although the chart does not extend past $100K, those making an income beyond that are welcome to pay 1.0% (0.5%) of their income.

A special note to members earning Canadian dollars: when going through the renewal process please first convert your Salary & Housing into US dollars so that you will be paying on the same scale as others.
